Gents, I just nailed down a Saito 182 TD, nice and clean with smooth bearings and great compression. It also includes a Cline regulator. I already ordered new pipes as those appear to have been re-shaped.

You are going to like it, if you find the right plane. Actually, fairly light compared to the 130 twin. And it already has a pair of spiffy aluminum velocity stacks.

nice Dave, but I think it's more snazzy than spiffy

Dave, if you would like something more sporty than the Tiger I will sell you a NIB Pacific Aeromodels 120 Gee Bee Y "version 2" (82" wingspan, Black and Yellow), I will throw in a set on Robart spring struts, I have photos.

My Goldberg Tiger 120 is like this one, the cowl cheeks have already been removed for a previously mounted Saito 130-T. The 182 should be a quick bolt on. I tried to cut holes for the cylinders but the cowl cheeks were left too flimsy.

Weeell i hope you've upgraded that 9mm no good for rabbit shootin water pistol

Dave nice score with the fa182 you will sure be able to throttle back and cruise but i think it would go better in the 120 size gee bee aeroplane jim suggested.My h9 taylorcraft (rec eng is fa125,scale power) has way more than scale performance with the fa182 twin.

ps glowy point taken i'll slow down on the joss sticks

Thanks Pete, I am still thinking on the Bee, but I already have the Tiger 120. The 182 will be shipped today, hopefully I'll get it this week. I ordered new pipes for it and will order a new Sonic Tronic's plug lighter kit. It appears that it was rigged up to light all four plugs, no need for that.

I know this is not a Top Flite forum and I searched in this forum and all over RCU RCG and the net but did not see anything. Most people are using OS 46 or OS 55 2cycle engines for the Top Flite Cessna 310. I was wanting to do two 90ts but they will not fit. The 60t will. Does anyone have documentation(video) of a Top Flite running with some Saito 60t's in it? Thanks

I will also start a new topic for my question in the Airplane forum

At 5.5+ lbs. a Saito 56 or 62 would drag it around nicely. Another great candidate for an 82 though, that'd give it some gitty up!

Dave, I will send you a PM about my GeeBee Y, and tell you my price and shipping, I have already looked into shipping, it may be more than you want to pay, and that's understandable

Yes it's stupid to wire all four plugs unless he was having trouble keeping both cylinders lit during taxi out or when throttled back on approach.I had that problem with my fa182 in the taylorcraft because i leaned it out to soon during the early days of test flying.You could lightly reinforce the inside of the cheek cowls with some lightweight glass cloth and make one side removable.Then there would be no excuse not to fit a pair of turbo headers and hear the fa182 fairly howl on a low fly bye at full throttle don't you think?.The t craft is usually flown with a mas 18x6 and when it comes past down wind at full throttle the prop tips howl,everybody goes oh yeah

Rowdog i've seen what i think is your model cessna 310 flown with two os 46 engines and it did'nt hang around,very slippery aeroplane and the time i saw it fly,very sensitive to roll and pitch tho that was a test flight that ended up re-kitting the plane,pilot was a bit stressed.How much does it weigh ready to fly normally? maybe the two fa60 twins would do it,saito engines always surprise with their 'pulling power' for want of a better way to say it.Would the beautiful looking saito fa90t rocker covers look bad sticking outside the cowl lines ? happy days planning that

Going to Prop Shop in Warren MI tomorrow and ordering one. Got plenty of Saitos that would "fly" it.
Better yet though; I am going to be using a powerhouse YS .70.

The thing I love about the CG Tiger's is that they practically fly themselves. If the original owner had trouble taxiing he didn't have the carb set correctly, me thinks. Blood spatter from a crime scene, cool looking and certainly different. I am going to change the servos in the CG 120 it has all digital servos in it, they are battery eaters and they buzz all the time.
